Must be schmick. Must look super-premium.
Logo colours can incorporate anything. I am partial to gold (for a whisky theme: think golden whisky or gold leaf) or maybe even a multi-coloured design along the lines of stained glass windows (for more of a ‘spiritual’ theme: think church windows). Royal red or royal blue might go down alright as well.
I’m also partial to damask, and leaf and scroll, especially leaf and scroll done by engraver Steve Lindsay – search for some of his knife engraving designs.
There’s a fair bit there to think about and I hope I’ve given you enough to play with. Don’t try and incorporate all of my suggestions into one design. By all means, feel free to think outside the box and give me a design that you feel would better fit my description of this business.
At the end of the day, I’ll be looking for a logo that is simple, elegant, classy and fits the feel for this business.
Best of luck!
